    Also, I assume this means the baby is wiped from continuity?

That question was left firmly unanswered by OMD/OMIT, so we still don't know. Great job on answering all the questions, Marvel, that was one question readers and non-reading fans had been asking for nearly three years. (Quesada's interview musings in early 2008, which were couched as a private opinion/preference are not necessarily binding for the writers of the feature, nor is it even a given that Quesada hasn't changed his mind in the meantime since erasing the pregnancy would require major changes to the OMITed Clone Saga).

I wasn't too fussed about Baby May. Quesada considers it wiped out, whether any other writer does or not. The other writers don't want to mention it, or they don't keep getting Marvel work. The only writer who mentioned her was Millar five years ago.

And he made the excellent point of 'You killed Harry, Norman kills May.'

And now that's wiped out because Harry didn't die. So Norman is even more reprehensible. Apparently. But ultimately, it continues to show that even fearful, poetic symmetry - that had an immensely wonderful ironic tone to it - can be wiped out in the second for something irrelevant.

And if you want proof people? Harry Osborn - the most boring character in the world - is now being carted off post Brand New Day, proving an original point all along. Why urinate on an old classic if you have nothing else to contribute with the character beyond nostalgia?. I hope the person who decided to vet Grim Hunt is listening.

Harry, along with May and Mary Jane, show everything that was wrong with the status quo change. And as time goes on, they continue to prove the point.

-Jeremiah Ecks,
who thinks that whoever decided to send Harry away may finally be starting to see some sense.
